Have the audience at this web page really so bad taste? It’s a very wrong ranking, I think. We should have troll free ranking the next time.

All the list creatures have suddenly decided that WPINOYB is a masterpiece after all. And it’s always been their favourite album. 🤨

I think this is one of Morrissey's strongest albums in a while.

If I had to rank his solo discography, it would be this. Of course, this always changes but IANADOAC ranks pretty high for me.

These things are a matter of opinion but any opinion that states California Son and Southpaw is better than Maladjusted, is quite obviously wrong.
I can't be bothered to do a list but I think Maladjusted is in the top five.
Also, his best LP is Bona Drag (i know thats not a studio lp)

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.

Great to see another Maladjusted fan! To me, it’s a masterpiece. To me, it’s a natural sequel to Vauxhall. To me, it should be impossible to love Morrissey and at the same time dislike Maladjusted - a quintessential Morrissey album.

I've included Swords And Bona Drag since they are cohesive album-length (or longer) releases with little to no material available on studio albums.

Of course Bona Drag is fantastic, with it not only featuring an array of top singles, but also the two stand-out songs on Viva Hate. And yes, Swords was such a high quality b-side album (I believe it was really an over-spill of the best songs that Moz had written in the 7 years between Maladjusted and Quarry). The Never-Played Symphonies, Friday Mourning and Ganglord (as well as Daddy's Voice to a lesser degree) all easily should have been on proper albums. For many artists, Swords would have been one of their best albums - shows the brilliance of Moz!
